|Subject: ||COBOL FIELD FORMAT|
Help! Converting a COBOL program to SAS (hooray)
and I need to have my SAS input statement read a five-digit
address zip code that is stored in three bytes of disk storage, using
the following COBOL statement:
PIC 9(5) VALUE ZEROS COMP-3.
which I take to mean it is really numeric for 5, but compressed to 3 bytes
so what input SAS format would be good to bring it in.
Thanks In Advance,
